Well there you have it. It is plyed. And I LOVE IT! Both of them! Carla was so nice to give me a capfull more of the pumpkin so I can dye up some more!

On to other news. Friday was my birthday. Yes, Happy Birtday to me. When you get to be my age, you are just glad that you wake up in the morning right? Okay so I am not THAT old, but really it is just another day. My parents and my Mother in Law came over with dinner. Very nice. A little later, Margaret and Big Lou came over with a birthday cake. My brother stopped by too. All around fun. Nothing fancy, but nice to just sit and talk and drink MORE wine. Saturday I went to a couple of garage sales and book sales. I think I spent around $15 dollars and got some cool tee shirts, and some really great books. My biggest deal was 4 skeins of Rowan 4-ply Botany in PURPLE! Enough to make the Anna socks in the fall magazine (06) YAY!!! That was $5 bucks total! Well after all that excitement this is what I did

I never take naps.


Note: I forgot that Carol came over Friday too. And she brought me a great pirate hat and lots of goodies!

How's that Carol? Hee hee....

But it wasn't a party. Really. Speak to my husband. He did all the planning...

Happy Birthday - take heart, I'm still older than you. :-)

It's nice to see that somebody else's cat takes up that spot. Whenever I wake up, that's where mine is!

Two of my favorite things: pumpkin colored yarn and naps! Happy Birthday!!! If I recall, you and I were born in the same year. Mine is right around the corner. I'm gonna go out and get me a pirate hat right now just so I'm ready!

Oh happy Birthday Girl! Got your message, and I'll call you back, but hopefully AFTER i get to the dentist. Much easier to type right now than talk *grin*

Hopefully this weekend!

Happy birthday, Beth!! And by golly... that yarn is GORGEOUS!

I forgot your birthday is right near mine! HAPPY BIRTHDAY!! And napping? I ALWAYS nap. I can't NOT nap. Once again, I think it just points to the fact that I should go to the doctor. :/
